I am using Search Widget in my Application in order to search by municipality or commission district. Is there any way I can change the grey text inside Search field "Find address or place" to "Find municipality, commission district or address"?

Thanks!

Diana,

  In that case you need to adjust the Search widgets style.css.

Open this file [install dir]\server\apps\[app#]\widgets\Search\css\style.css and add this rule:

.jimu-widget-search .arcgisSearch {
   width: 400px;
}

Diana,

   Sure in the Search widgets configuration UI you will find "Placeholder text for searching all: " this is where you need to add your desired text.

Robert,

Thank you, but the problem is that if I do it like this, the box is not long enough to have all words in it..

Is there anyway I can make it longer? Thank you!!!!
